Strohm, manufacturer of fully bonded Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP), has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with State Power Investment Corporation of China (SPIC) concerning green hydrogen. 

From its base near Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Strohm designs and manufactures of Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP). The company claims TCP is more cost effective than steel pipe and has c.50% less manufacturing greenhouse gas emissions. As TCP is a flexible pipe, it can be installed offshore, using the same methods as currently used for array cables.

SPIC is one of the five major electricity generation companies in China and has developed several offshore wind farm. It aims to generate green hydrogen offshore.


The two companies aim to develop solutions for offshore hydrogen generation as well as transportation. According to Strohm, its TPC technology is ideal for hydrogen applications as it doesn’t corrode and it has a long-life span with zero maintenance requirements.
